Find your passion and the rest will come
Thapelo Segami attended a Socionext workshop in February 2016 in the town of Phomolong, Free State. During the workshop he worked on the idea of a fashion design business.
Because he had always been interested in clothing and fashion design he knew that this was an opportunity he wanted to pursue and he still does so to this day.
Despite working with basic equipment Thapelo continues to make a living from his passion. Seasonal changes in weather have put pressure on his business, but have at the same time forced him to expand his offerings in line with the needs of his customers.
Thapelo’s message to other aspiring entrepreneurs? Follow your passion! You may not have a lot of resources but what you do have is your passion and what drives you. If you can find this and pursue it, the rest will come.
